Beyond Good & Evil
|Beyond Good & Evil|
This game has unused code.
Beyond Good & Evil is an action-adventure that follows Jade, an investigative reporter and martial artist, and her allies. The player controls Jade and allies, solving puzzles, fighting enemies, and obtaining photographic evidence.
Michel Ancel, creator of the Rayman series and this game, envisioned it as the first part of a trilogy. This ultimately didn't pan out, and likely never will since Ancel quit game development altogether in 2020.

Some unused objects can be accessed through cheating.
The book ported by Double H is a fixed object that you can't use, transfer, or access the description of. If you try to access to the item description through cheating, you can see a very basic and unused model of a book, and no text for the description.
Unused Object 1
This object has no icon, name, or description text. Its model is similar to a taser.
Unused Object 2
This object has no icon, name, or description text. It has two different animated textures.
An alternate version of the Akuda Bar music.
There might be more unused sounds, but it's hard to know without mistakes.
A cartoony gunshot sound with it audibly hitting a can. Possibly an early checkpoint/new lap sound for races.
Longer Spanish Samples
Some of the samples from the Spanish dialogues are cut off in-game. Listening to the audio files makes it obvious why they did this, as they contain very loud sounds of the voice actors turning a page over.
Actually upload these videos for comparison, if warranted?
There's an unused propaganda video with an early General Kehck model.
There's also a pre-rendered video with one of the ending cutscenes. The video is shorter than the cutscene, and it has some differences from the final cutscene.
Textures for a crab-like creature seen in at least one pre-release screenshot. These textures are loaded in when at Mamma-Go, implying it may have been present there at some point. It's also possible that the creature is present somewhere in the map, albeit off screen and unreachable.
Unused Code Functions
If you set the quantity of any item, such as turbo, to an extremely high value via cheating, the item counter will disappear from the HUD, and every time you use the item its quantity value won't decrease. None of this functionality is ever used in normal gameplay, and seems to be unfinished as the quantity value still decreases when you transfer the item to your partner.
Command Line BIG File Path
On the Windows version, you can specify the path and name of the BIG packed file with the game resources passing it as parameter on the command line. If no parameter is passed, it defaults to BGE.exe /B sally_clean.bf.
